This will be the 5th installment of Violence Free Colorado’s monthly BROWN BAG Teleconference Series! Each month of 2015, you are invited to join Violence Free Colorado staff and experts from advocacy organizations around the state for a Brown Bag conversation!
Whether you already have a multi-agency team, have a team that is struggling, or are thinking about starting one this discussion can help clarify the process a CCR team uses. The CCR team process is a tool used by interdisciplinary groups and domestic violence advocacy organizations to further their common goals of enhancing safety and ensuring accountability when intervening in cases involving intimate partner violence. Its premise is that workers are institutionally organized to do their jobs in particular ways—they are guided to do jobs by the forms, policies, philosophy, and routine work practices of the institution in which they work. When these work practices routinely fail to adequately address the needs of people it is rarely because of the failure of individual practitioners. It is a problem with how their work is organized and coordinated. A CCR team is designed to allow interagency partners discover how problems are produced in the structure of case processing and management. We encourage questions on how utilizing this approach would work for your organization and how you can start the process of initiating a CCR in your community.
